Friday eye candy
Virginia - you asked how did I get such a lovely embossed image on the velvet. The only stamps which I know work(and Jacinta tells me this) are our polymer ones - the illumination ones and these 2 new ones and My Stamps - you paint them, lay them flat face up on a firm base - I use my granite bench top but a wooden board will work well - lay the velvet top side down and press with a hot dry iron. I have tried all sorts of other stamps - the ones with wooden bottoms - they often lift off the wood and the rubber ones don't give such a clear impression. That's why I went for these 2 new polymer stamps and have a few more on the ready. It's easy when you have the right stamps.
